Former Vanderbilt WR Chris Boyd to tell NFL teams 'I'm not a bad guy'


Wide receiver Chris Boyd was kicked off the Vanderbilt football team for attempting to cover up an alleged rape by four teammates. Boyd has been invited to attend the NFL Scouting Combine and is ready to share is side of the story.

I know the questions are coming,” Boyd told the Tennessean. “And I am ready to tell my side of what happened, and it will clear up a lot of the misconceptions about what really did happen. I know everyone is going to want to know about it, and I understand that.”

“I was raised to be polite and have manners. If I just be myself, I think people will understand that I am a good guy, I come from a good family, and I mean well,” Boyd said. “I would never want to hurt anybody or do anything harmful to anyone. I think once people get to know me and spend some time around me, it will be pretty obvious. I’m not a bad guy.”
